Think i may need one too
car wouldn't start this morning , would just turn over but wouldn't fire . This happened about 3 weeks ago then started after 5 mins .
After reading bits n bobs on this here font of knowledge
, i decided that my battery might be gubbed. It ran flat in about 35secs of cranking although it wasn't particularly cold here this morning , about 3 degrees C . .
Anyhoo , forked out for a new Bosch 100Ah battery £125 much to Mrs Kugabooga's annoyance. Money is tight for everyone ( with kids ) at this time of year
..................and all this when the wheels had just greased sufficiently to purchase the Re-map from The Custom 300c Shop
Back on track .......Car starts fine now but thinking it might be Crankshaft position sensor, had this happen on last motor (beemer) although it was only when it was hot.
Would be interested to find a source for one of these .
Forgot to check for fault codes before i changed the battery , checked after new battery installed but nothing showing .
Car is 2008 , 33000 miles ,
Many thanks and
Merry xmas folks .
